When it comes to the general category the candidate will need about a rank of 500 to be entirely safe and get a choice of preferred stream. But it is possible to make it to the not so highly sought after streams with a rank of even 1000. In IIT Bombay cut-off list, popular branches like computer science needed ranks like 50 while engineering chemistry admitted a rank of 3962. These cut-offs belong to the general category. The other categories would definitely have different cut-offs. On the other hand,  IIT Kharagpur cut-off list for the popular branches like computer science saw ranks like 2210 while niche branches like aerospace saw 2857.
